This card is an adaptation of one that I received in a Convention Swap from Cathy Fluellen of Surprise, AZ. I needed a quick "Welcome" card that would be suitable for a man or woman, and this one with a geometric pattern and "Reverse Spotlighting" was perfect. Fast and fabulous. Thanks, Cathy!
I cut a 5-1/4" x 4" card front in Very Vanilla to go over a Night Of Navy card base. It was easiest to place my hexagons first and mark where the final hex should be punched. Then the large oval was easy to punch using the edge of the card stock as a guide. (Hold the punched "upside down" so that you can see through the window on the underside of the punch and get exact placement) I used the oval template from the Occasions Paper Piercing pack to space the piercing - FYI: The Large Oval Punch corresponds to the Oval Framelets dies - it's one size smaller that the smallest framelet. The Very Vanilla card stock was attached to the base using Stampin' Dimensionals to give it some depth.
